MG Shenlong Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

MG XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam Color Guide & Manual

XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam from Gundam Wing Endless Waltz. This time made into a 1/100 Master Grade kit by Bandai. This unit was flown by Chang Wufei and is a melee/close range combat specialist.

Which raises the philosophical question on whether having a spear should constitute you as a close range combat specialist? The extended range of the spear is more than arms length and allows you to strike your opponent without giving him the chance to hit you. And that's not even going into the subject of spear throwing!... blah blah blah... somebody told me before that I worry too much about the little things *snicker*

The 1/100 MG XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam is selling for 2780 yen at Amiami, 3116 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3040 yen at Hobby Search
